This is how it starts.
First the anti-2nd Amendment liberals will say they just want to do away with AR-15s, and the next thing you know, they’ve successfully taken all of your guns away.
And one A-list actor is warning gun owners of just that.
Since the tragic Parkland massacre, students of Stoneman Douglas are leading the charge to repeal and replace the 2nd Amendment.
Survivors David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez have become the face of the movement and were instrumental in creating the March for Our Lives, which became a nationwide protest on March 24th.
Celebrities like George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg all donated $500,000 towards the cause and touted these high school kids as the “change” we need.
But they’re being used, because it’s their youth and innocence being exploited by the Hollywood elites.
But Academy Award Winner for Best Actor, Matthew McConaughey – known for The Lincoln Lawyer, Mud and Dallas Buyers Club – had some different thoughts on the movement.
During a presser for his upcoming film at CinemaCon, McConaughey believes a reasonable conversation and solution must be discussed before the movement leads to the total elimination of all guns.
“A month after speaking at the March for Our Lives in his hometown of Austin, Texas, Matthew McConaughey says he supports some gun control but fears the youth-led movement could be “hijacked” by those hoping to eliminate all guns in the United States.
McConaughey spoke about his support for the marchers on Monday in Las Vegas, where he was promoting his upcoming film, “White Boy Rick,” at the CinemaCon theater-owners convention.
He called gun violence “an epidemic in our country.”
“I’ve got a lot of friends who are gun owners. I’ve got a lot of friends who are NRA (National Rifle Association). I grew up hunting.
We had responsible gun ownership, but I was taught the right way to respect that tool,” he said. “At the same time, their petition that they were speaking about is a very good one. And I also fear that their campaign — they have to watch that they don’t get hijacked. Meaning, a lot of the crowd was for no guns at all.
That was not the march for life. March for Our Lives was for rightful, just, responsible gun ownership — but against assault rifles, against unlimited magazines and for following up on the regulations.”
The 48-year-old Oscar winner said he hoped to find room for agreement between anti-gun activists and the NRA.
“The two sides (have) got to talk. Because we both agree that there’s an epidemic. We both agree something has got to change.
So I was for what they were marching for, and I wanted to speak to my hometown on the capital of my state Texas’ steps.
And also talk to the many men and women who I grew up with, I know that had the guns, that owned the guns, and say hey, do we really, where can we reach across the aisle here?
Find a compromise for the betterment of all of us?”
McConaughey plays the father of a teenager who becomes a drug dealer and an FBI informant in “White Boy Rick,” based on a true story. It’s set for a September release in theaters.”
The main point that the Academy Award winner is making is that if both sides can’t come to a reasonable solution, then each side will resort to extremes and that could mean the end of the 2nd Amendment altogether.
